to and even then at the very last minute. under romney-care in massachusetts, in many ways, this was the template of the affordable care act. this is where things stood after one month, 123 people have seened up. granted, it is one state, there are 34 states using the federal obama care website. that's about one-third of 1%. after otwo months in massachusetts, just 2,300 people have enrolled. it was only after 11 months under the threat of a penalty about to be imposed that more than 36,000 people in massachusetts would go on to enroll. most of them didn't enroll until that 11-month mark. so obama care can work. it won't kick in until the end of next march, five months from now. getting it to work depends on getting the problems ironed out and getting americans of all ages signed up. the obama administration needs to straighten out the political mess it's created. it's not just one future cabinet secretary at stake. this is the fate of the democratic party and beyond it is tied to whether obama care succeeds. the short term, that means getting the website fixed. in the long
on talks with iran; curbing the cost of health care in massachusetts; what judicial gridlock means for the federal courts; and the legacy of lincoln's most famous speech. >> ifill: j.p. morgan's $13 billion settlement brings months of delicate, high stakes negotiations to an end. under the terms of the deal, $4 billion will go to struggling homeowners in the form of reduced mortgage payments, lower loan rates and other assistance, $7 billion will go to investors as compensation; the remainder will be fines paid by the bank. the agreement comes as investigators are said to be pursuing cases against other financial institutions. some assessment now of the deal's significance and its problems. lynn stout is a professor of business law at cornell university. she closely watches financial regulation. and bert ely is a banking consultant. what's your first sense of this deal? was it a good deal for anybody? >> well, i think as much as anything else it gets these problems behind jane morgan chase. they had a tentative deal a few weeks ago but now they can get this behind them and move on
senator from massachusetts, a brand new fox news contributor scott brown. so, senator, what is the biggest problem facing america in your opinion? he think it's a combination of things as you referenced in the intree, jobs national security, energy, which actually makes it so individuals and businesses are uncertainty as to what the tax policy is and what the regulatory policy is. they are kind of standing idol. then you throw in the amazing amount of debt that we have and deficit that we have tremendous amount of gridlock, tremendous amount of indecision, that's contributing to the negative impressions that people have about our leadership and about people that are trying to solve those very real problems. >> yes, the problem is that our government is riding us into bankruptcy, but we the people are allowing it. why? >> well, let me just reference that. listen, bill, as you referenced your upbringing my mom and dad were married and divorced four times each. i lived in 17 houses. my mom was on welfare for a period of time. it was there as a safety net not as entitlement. there are people i
? >> right. the white house continues to point to massachusetts where 123 people enrolled in the program the first month. that number steadily grew. >> speaking of massachusetts, i thought it was fascinating yesterday, the same man that accused mitt romney of killing a woman, remember that? mitt romney killed my wife. remember that commercial? he was such a beast, a horrible human being. mitt romney killed my wife. barack obama believed that. >> obama did not claim that. the president did not say that. >> hillary clinton wasn't running against him in 2012. >> this commercial was put together by some sort of arm. >> somebody very close to barack obama. barack obama takes responsibility, the buck stops with barack obama. >> okay. >> barack obama and his campaign and people connected to his campaign and people closely associated with him in the past claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. >> okay. the story is bad enough, you don't need to do that. >> can i please make my point? i'm going to say it again, barack obama, his campaign, they all claimed in 2012. it was one of the most horrific
with iran could be thank you thank youing. >> we take a look at an experiment currency in massachusetts, that could be going global. [ ♪ theme ] >>> hello and welcome to al jazeera america. live from new york city. i'm morgan radford. >> vietnam braces for typhoon haiyan. 300,000 people have been evacuated as a storm is expected to make land fall there sunday. in the philippines people are dealing with the aftermath of what is considered the worst storm on record. more than 100 people are dead after the storms struck the island on friday. leyte was the hardest hit. south-west of manila. it caused landslides, blew off roads and shut down electricity. >> for more, we are joined by mar margo ortiguez. what is the scope of the devastation? >> the full extent the government can't begin to estimate. we are seeing pictures of the worst areas - way beyond the first 24 hours since the storm hit. particularly on leyte island many homes - in fact, some witnesses are saying all the homes on that island have been destroyed. this is not a small island of fishing villages, there was a full-blown ci
knows something about obama care from being from massachusetts. any other reasons? >> maybe because he's built businesses, corporations that hire tens of thousands of americans. but, you know, nancy passed the bill away from the fog of washington. pelosi doesn't take into account what's really going on around the country. she's going to go out and simply make the talking point. this is what the president wants her to do. this is what she's doing. so frankly just dismiss her. let's go back to what is happening just like the interview you just had. the interview you had was one on the numbers. when they talked about 5% of the population over 15 million people. if they are not served by obama care like promised, that's like 15 million people not served. >> let's go back to what romney said. was it too strong for him to say it's rotten, the rest of the three years of president obama? >> remains to be seen. i would say he's not been right about a lot of things. we'll leave it at that. the one thing he was not accurate about is where he said massachusetts works because it's a state plan. gov
thought. in fact, when scott brown won that seat in massachusetts, you voted so quickly to ensure that not one republican will have input in the senate. and you now you complain about republicans being part of the fix. you didn't care what we had to say during the time. >> this is not true. >> nancy pelosi made it clear. you'll have to read the bill when it's passed. because you didn't want to take the time to listen to republican ideas to get republican input and now you want to blame us. that's not how it works. >> the secret is this whole thing was bit on conservative republican ideas in the first place that you all cut and ran from because this president is the one who promoted it. >> zero votes. zero republican votes because you didn't want to work with us. you didn't care about our ideas. and now you want to blame us. it doesn't work that way. >> that's just not how it happened. >> when we passed part "d" and that's a great success. >> guys, we've got to leave it there. mo from the dnc, sean from the rnc, this was fun. let's do it again. >> thanks for having us. >> thanks. >
under the health care reform law that massachusetts enacted in 2006 under governor romney. >> we can reasonably expect the numbers will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled only .3%. or 123 people in its first month. we know from experience in the bay state that people tend to research and kid theconsider th options talk things over with their families before making a purchase. >> joining me now, from "the washington post," and professor of economics at mit who worked on the massachusetts health care reform law and -- the affordable care act. okay, professor, it is up to you to tell us how -- the affordable care act is doing, compared to the early days of the massachusetts law. >> the big issue, it is too early to make a strong conclusion. the bottom line is people don't sign up until they have to. >> we are doing better than massachusetts. as secretary sebelius said .3% in massachusetts. 1 1/2% of the federal level. goal of 7 million. that is not a relevant comparison. relevant comparison happen in march. we need new focus on not t
worked on the massachusetts plan. it didn't raise taxes our cut medicaid and this one does. if they can't get the website right, what makes you think they will be able to get the health care itself correct. >> the ones calling for delay now are not the republicans, it's the democrats. there is about a dozen says let's push back the mandate, the penalty, joe mansion of west virginia saying let's delay it a year. we're going to talk about gop problems, but how big of a burden could obama care be for democrats in 2014? >> it could potentially be a very significant burden, chris. i imagine most of the people calling fe delay are -- for del are up for reelection. i think the political impact depends on two things. number one, the behavior of the republicans. if that was the case, that will shift attention away. assuming they don't do that, let's turn to substance. if there are many more cancellations, that's the big problem. if you look at the american people who have coverage really care about, it's have u lower cost increases. it would be because of other factors, that will politically be
. the administration pointed many times to the massachusetts law as a model for obama care. >> yeah, megyn. if massachusetts is the model our guide should be a man named john kingsdale. he ran the massachusetts health exchange from 2006 to 2010. he calls the affordable care act the world's largest insurance store. he says their first big challenge is getting people to pay for premiums saying many who get the subsidies don't have checkbooks. then there is the month to month bookkeeping. >> the individual, i'm guilty myself, sometimes miss a monthly payment by mistake. the insurance company has to figure out, does that mean you have disenrolled without telling us? does that mean you sent the check and it was lost in the mail? or we have a check here that's $17.03 less than it is supposed to be. what does that mean? that has to be done individual by individual like hand-to-hand combat. >> in essence he says the government is now managing this huge retail store with an extra the layer of management. it goes from you in your insurance company which is today and then from your insurance company
and running and working, and my firm belief and everything we know from massachusetts is that we will get those people. when you have very good rates like you have in california, $50 for a 30-year-old -- >> here's the last question. with all the problems with the website more than a dozen senate democrats -- not republicans -- democrats are now saying put off the penalties, even delay. in one case manchin is saying tkhraoeu -- delay the individual mandate a year. we heard from max baucus, the senator who helped write obamacare, here he is. >> maybe we should start thinking about delaying penalties. it is not right to penalize people for mistakes the government has made because the exchange isn't working. >> should the penalties be delayed beyond march 31? >> no, they should not be delayed beyond march 31. if the website is working by november 30 people then will have a full four months to sign up and that is no reason to delay. and i don't think you can prejudge now. if it's working adequately by november 30 that's a whole new question. it's way premature to talk about it. i think it's go
, that enrollment in the first month would be low. that is the experience we saw in massachusetts. and it is the experience we expect here because especially for healthier younger people, the pattern of behavior is to shop around to wait before you purchase when you don't have to purchase before december 15th in order to have insurance on january 1st, which the earliest possible date for coverage. we expect that pattern to play out with the marketplaces in the affordable care act. secondly, the fact that the website has been so challenging and so problematic in that first month means that the enrollment numbers will be even lower than expected. beyond that, i don't have specific figures. i have not seen specific figures. but i anticipate we will be releasing data about enrollment by the end of the week. >> but you don't have a specific date? >> i do not. mark. >> thanks, jay. the president spoke last week about gaps and problems with the rollout of the website that need to be fixed. what are those gasp and what fixes would you -- >> well, he was referring to, and i'll quote, "i've
hill. he was in massachusetts touting his health care law in the state he claims obama care now is modelled on. massachusetts. the president struggled to address the wave of cancellation letters that are hitting both individuals and small businesses who buy their own insurance. this, of course, follows his repeated vows over several years that anyone who likes their insurance would be able to keep it. >> so if you're getting one of these letters, just shop around in the new marketplace. that's what it's for. >> our first guest tonight at that hearing today, she pressed sebelius on what some are calling the question of the day while making a strong point about obama care and lightening the mood just a bit at the same time. asking whether men can have babies, joining us, congresswoman renee elmers, member of the house committee on energy and commerce is x the republican women's policy committee. congresswoman, the question you asked, as i said, aside from lightening the mood, gets to some of the problems with obama care. did you expect an answer? >> you know, i knew that this was
someone who was an adviser involved, jonathan gruber, an economics professor at the massachusetts institute of technology and behind the massachusetts health care plan, romney care as you may know. so mr. gruber, professor gruber, these numbers are rather disappointing, i would think. do you think that the administration is going to be able to get the website up and running enough to make the 7 million enrollee projection needed by the spring? >> you know, i don't agree with the characterization it's disappointing. i think they're meaningless. look, when we open our system in massachusetts the first month the people could pay premiums and enroll, 123 people enrolled. by the end of the year, it was 36,000. that meant we got .3% of the people the first month. by that state the federal government did great, 1.3% of the people the first month. it's too early to say anything useful. the real deadline we have to focus on is march of next year. that's when the individual mandate kicks in. that's when people need to be signed up and what we saw in massachusetts was a large rush before the
and then open herself and the administration up to ridicule consistent with what massachusetts, a state of only 6.5 million residents, experienced an initial rollout of romney care. not revealing the number of people that paid for the plan and she did not explain why the obama administration will withhold those numbers from the public until december 15. >> the numbers are consistent with the numbers that massachusetts reported and that feel are the most accurate by the 15th of december and we will be able to tell you how many people have paid for this coverage. lou: or disturbing numbers. 55% say they believe the obama administration tried to deceive them about obamacare. compared to only 30% many say we need to throw obamacare ou and begin again and 42% say keep trying to fix it and 10% say leave it alone. well, let's find out our guests tonight have to say. joining us is andrea and greg. cohost of the five and thank y both for being here. i would like to turn to you, andrea. she has become a metaphor for what is going on with health care dog of an obamacare itself. it's striking that this thi
there is no way obamacare would have ever passed. massachusetts might like their health care plan but all of the polls show it and president obama not only his approval rating personally but politically as well has gone down as a result of the rollout. >> the polls show they like the shutdown even less. we will be sitting here and i promise you it is going to cost republicans in the midterm. martha: we will bring you back and find out. what does the president do now, what does he say, that continues to be asked this morning. always good to see you. bill: can a 6'5", 320-pound professional football player be bullied? why did miami dolphins player say he walked away from his team and the other player on that team now suspended indefinitely? martha: investigation into benghazi now goes to the next level. one senator issuing a bold threat the white house unless congress get some answers finally. >> the fact is we have four dead americans because of a protest or because of guys out for a while decided to kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? (dad) just feather it out
debate during america's 1787 constitutional convention. massachusetts convention delegate and america's fifth vice president, gary, stated, the origination clause, was quote, the cornerstone of the accommodation, end quote, of the great compromise of 1787 that persuaded a majority of the states to ratify the constitution. stated differently, but for the origination clause there would have been no constitution and no united states as we know it. the origination clause was that important. virginia delegate and co-author of our bill of rights, george mason, explained opposition to senate tax originations when he declared, quote, the senate did not represent the people but the states and their political care. it was important, therefore, it should tax the people. again, the senate is not like the house of representatives chosen frequently and obliged to return frequently among the people. they are chosen by the states for six years, will probably settle themselves at the seat of government, will pursue schemes for their agran diesment, and taking advantage of their impatience at the close
, massachusetts, for democrats. you are on with trita parsi. i agree with the caller earlier who was saying why is netanyahu screaming about orion -- iran having nuclear weapons? for them to have that to have energy throughout their country and it creates jobs for their country. think we need to put israel in check. it seems like they are trying to take focus off of what they are doing in their country. they are taking all of the land andans' dividing that country. -- he feels pity because they are treating me palestinian people the same way at germany treated the israeli people. host: do think that is a fair assessment? guest: i would say that because the iranians are -- of the mpt. the and national -- the international community is -- i don'tthe fact think they need a nuclear weapons. nuclear and causes a nuclear domino effect in the middle east, then you have other countries starting nuclear weapons programs. that would eliminate a conventional superiority that iran has. it would eight p.m. -- it would -- mistake for them to host: an e-mail that we received on the subject. in what hetes doe

reporters that when the state of massachusetts passed its own law, enrollment there started very slowly, just 123 people in the first month. >> we know experience in the bay >> wooduff: mary agnes carey of kaiser health news is with us again tonight. it's an editorially independent news organization. mary agnes, welcome back to the program. so what did we learn today from the administration's official release of these numbers? >> well, they're lower than expected. administration officials for days, for weeks, have been trying to dampen expectations. these numbers would be great, and they certainly were not. of the 10 6,000 people that have enrolled, you have about a quarter of those through the federal exchanges, and those are in 36 states. that's really a big chunk of states that are being run by the federal government, the exchanges, and then the remaining three-fourths were three the state exchanges set up in about 15 states and the district of column ja. >> woodruff: three to one that number reflects the state exchanges. to what extension is this consistent with what the administrat
that glitch. but at the end of the day, this is really the massachusetts plan. and ed, 97% of the people in massachusetts are insured. and that brings peace of mind and happiness. >> senator, what's your reaction to the supreme court taking up the contraception mandate? >> i think it had to be taken up, because as you know, there are court opinions all over the place. but i really want to make a case here. if this court is truly for individual freedom, it should think about the individual rights of the people who work in corporations all across america. it is their right to make a decision. and i don't know if you're aware of this. it surprised me to learn this originally. 50% of the people who take birth control, of the women, take it for a medical condition. and it prevents cancer and other gynecological problems. so if an employer is stopping you from that, they're going to stop you from getting your kids a vaccine, if their christian scientists. so i think -- look, i believe in a conscience clause, obama administration has one for religious institutions. but that's as far as it shoul
in that country need help. that is roughly the size of the state of massachusetts. 6.5 million syrians are currently without homes. 2 million have fled the country and 4.5 million are said to be internally displaced. >> reporter: more 40% of syria's population now relies on outside help to survive. the ref fees either inside their own country or seeking shelter elsewhere. and the situation is getting worse. the un estimates that figure will rise to half of the population in need of aid by year's end. >> it is not one single event that has caused this. it is a gradual increase because the conflict continues to deteriorate day after day, hour by hour. >> reporter: the two and a half years of civil war have left many syrians without proper sanitation facilities, sufficient food, water, or access to medical help. of those who have fled to neighboring lebanon, the biggest come from these provinces. but for those who have been able to escape the violence, more than 100,000 are seeking shelter in egypt. more than half a million are in jordan. lebanon has the most with more than 800,000 syrian
from massachusetts. we're back with kim strousle and "wall street journal" editorial board member mary kissle also joins us. kim, start with you, what's behind the warren boom? >> the argument is if you look through the history of the democratic party, there's always these flashes of enthusiasm for these populist anti-wall street candidates. some of them, most of them, have always flamed out because they do tend to appeal to only a small part of the base. campuses and white liberal, cultural liberal. but not necessarily with minorities or the working poor. their argument, "new republican" argument is that has changed, the combination of the 2008 financial crisis and barack obama as president has shifted the party. they're ready and eager for a candidate like warren. certain be thithings like the b blasio election in new york prove that. and this is where the party should be. >> what positions have warren supported that really get these left wingers excited? >> as kim says, she's an economic populous. she's basically a single issue candidate if she runs for president. she's all about co
. the medical center in massachusetts. the american civil liberties union say he's being maltreated in prison. here to explain, a criminal defense attorney and an attorney and co-host of "the five" so why is this thug complaining? what's the problem? >> he's saying that these restrictions are excessive and interfering with his right to represent himself. the fact that he's kept in sol te solitary. the person that put the restrictions in place is our own attorney general, eric holder. he did that on august 27th. so the problem is they're saying and aclu is joining in on this with mr. tsarnaev's lawyer saying these are undue restrictions. >> he's isolated from the other prisoners. >> solitary confinement. >> number two, all of his communications are monitored because he's a terrorist. he's a terrorist. is there anything else? >> the other one that's important is attorneys are forbidden from releasing information to outside sources. these are common measures put in place in terrorist cases. >> not a gag order on the attorney. >> it happens in many cases. it's not out of the question. >> in this
at the massachusetts rollout, the massachusetts rollout was just as meager. >> this is not about a website, this poll question, number two. president obama telling americans they could keep their health care plans. he knowingly lied. 50% of those polled in the fox poll, 40% he didn't know. >> well, we know he knew. eric cantor is touting this clip of video from the white house meeting where obama says flat out, seven or eight million people will have to lose their insurance. they knew. the white house aides debated whether he could say this and were overruled by the political people who said he had to say it to help sell the thing. "the new york times" which has been in delicious agony trying to figure out how to characterize what were in effect blatant lies by the president -- >> let me pause there. "the new york times" quote today. the split between lawmakers and the white house reflects the dilemma the president finds himself in as he seeks to follow through on last week's acknowledgement about his incorrect promise on health care coverage of t coverage. hundreds of thousands of people have receiv
is in this, what their coverage options. what we saw in massachusetts was that those numbers spiked for young people particularly when they could see they could get a really good deal on those coverage options. >> the white house is banking on the idea that the young people will give this a second chance, that they won't have to spend hours to find what they want, and they'll go back in january when the president says, okay, it's all fixed. do you think that will happen. >> i think it's important to point out that health insurance is isn't a fad. it's not buying a ipad, a pair of jeans where oh man, the website doesn't work, i'm going to give up. it's an important thing and health insurance is something that young people truly valley. yes, i think young people are willing, and we talk to young people every day. it's not working great right now, we'll check back in a week. historically what we've seen, as we get closer to the deadline we're going to see that spike in enrollment, but our job is really to make sure that young people have the facts so you know the median income for unin
about this they point to the state of massachusetts, there's the model. the state of massachusetts during the first month signed up barely over 100 people. this is the same thing. what is your reaction to that? is it the same thing? is it just a slow rollout? >> well the state of massachusetts didn't throw off more people every day than were able to sign up. the state of massachusetts didn't spend $600 million and have 3 1/2 years to get this ready. and just, i think it was yesterday, the governor of vermont took action to delay at least a month the implementation. this is a very liberal democratic governor in a very liberal state saying this isn't ready. if the administration had been honest about the figures on day one, day two, day three, the truth is, we would have already had some sort of a reasonable time out to give an opportunity for the american people to properly judge cost benefit and hopefully, reverse this terrible trend of throwing people off health care plans that they liked, that did in fact cover them and costs less. that is something that is going on every day in
*eus ago in massachusetts -- two days ago in massachusetts saying it is a pretty popular plan, they reined in the cost. it worked for massachusetts, why not the country? >> this is government trying to put this in practice. when is the last time you went to d.m.v.? you happy with that experience? now for health care you've got to go through the same mish. you've had the series of rolling crises. the rollout a disaster. you've got the upcoming cancellation probably of employer-provided policies. and now looming just out there, just ahead you've got a doctor crisis. >> what do you mean by a doctor crisis? >> doctors are fleeing anything to do with medicare, medicaid and the obama exchanges. >> why? >> because they are not being paid properly. hospitals are not being paid properly. medicare is going to lose $700 billion. doctors are swamped with new paper work, new rules, new regulations, and they've got absolutely no protection whatsoever from lawsuits. they predict 90,000 doctor shortage. 90,000 within six years. 90,000 doctors short. >> you know what? on some exchanges they don't even list
